The trailer of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga has released and it is quite an unexpected one. With the feels of an old school romance and a setting to support the same, this movie seems to go just beyond that. It indeed is a love story but not a conventional one that you’d think of, as suggested by the tagline – ‘The Most Unexpected Romance Of The Year’.
Within 15 seconds into the trailer, we know that Sweety is a girl who’s grown up dreaming about a perfect fairy-tale love story and a beautiful shaadi as her happily ever after. Soon she is old enough and the family is desperate to get her married (as expected of any girl in her 20’s in a small town), but wouldn’t find a suitable match for her. Sahil Mirza, writer/director of a play, has fallen in love with Sweety at the first sight and soon they develop a close friendship, which is misunderstood by the family for love and are happily accepted as a couple into it. During the course of all the confusion, we learn that for all this while, Sweety wouldn’t engage with any guy for a deep dark secret that she had been holding for years now and that her love preference is not something that would be accepted by the society or her family. It is a fair speculation that the movie is based on a lesbian love story and will be a progressive step.
It is so refreshing and bold at the same time for the industry to not only pick such a subject but also make a film with actors like Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao, Juhi Chawla. This will be the first time for the father-daughter duo to pair up on-screen. The hashtag used for the film LetLoveBe clearly indicates that the movie would talk about the acceptance of love beyond caste, creed or sex. Directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is all set to hit the theatres on 1st Feb, 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited!
